Cuba Will Continue Infiltrating Agents Into USA To Prevent Terrorism, 9/11/01

*CUBA WILL CONTINUE INFILTRATING AGENTS INTO USA TO PREVENT TERRORISM Havana, September 11 (RHC)--Cuban Foreign Minister Felipe Perez Roque has insisted that Cuba will continue infiltrating agents into the United States to prevent terrorist actions against the island. Perez Roque said that Cuba's only option is to continue seeking out information using its own methods, in response to questions from journalists regarding the arrest in late August of another two Cuban-Americans suspected of spying on behalf of Cuba. The Cuban Foreign Minister denied, however, that Cuba's agents are spying against the US government, reiterating that Cuba seeks information concerning the activities of Cuban-American exile groups responsible for terrorist attacks like the 1997 bomb explosion in a Havana hotel that claimed the life of an Italian tourist. He added that Cuba not only has no other option, but also has the right to seek out pertinent information due to the impunity enjoyed by exile groups, principally in Miami, engaging in terrorist activities. Perez Roque said the most recent arrests constitute a maneuver aimed at influencing the sentences to be dictated against five other Cubans wrongly convicted of spying against the US government. Federal authorities arrested in late August the Cuban-American couple George and Marisol Gari, who have resided in the United States for the past 10 years. Cuban authorities have repeatedly insisted that those arrested in the United States for attempting to prevent terrorist actions against Cuba are considered heroes and patriots here on the island.

Former Cuban Agent Explains Need To Infiltrate Us-Based Terrorist Groups, 9/5/01, RHC

*FORMER CUBAN AGENT EXPLAINS NEED TO INFILTRATE US-BASED TERRORIST GROUPS Havana, September 5 (RHC)--A former Cuban security agent said on Cuban TV Tuesday night that there is no remedy other than infiltration to prevent terrorist groups in Florida from attacking the island. Guatemalan-born Percy Francisco Alvarado Godoy said on last night's television roundtable that in order to prevent incidents such as the 1997 Havana hotel bombings, in which an Italian tourist was killed, it was essential for Cuba to infiltrate organizations such as the Cuban American National Foundation (CANF) which organiz such terrorist acts against Cuba. The US authorities are not putting a stop to their actions, he said; in fact they operate with total impunity, forcing Cuba to take some measure of self-defense. During their trial in Florida, Alvarado Godoy had provided a court deposition in defense of the five Cubans who were convicted of endangering US national security by infiltrating Cuban-American terrorist organizations. The deposition described his undercover work in the CANF, during which he was assigned the job of placing explosives in public places in Cuba. Both Guatemalan and Salvadoran citizens were eventually tried and convicted for the 1997 hotel bombings in Havana. Godoy explained that one of his contacts was the international terrorist Luis Posada Carriles, who is under arrest in Panama for planning the assassination of Fidel Castro. He said that Posada Carriles had transported explosives to Guatemala himself. Asked why he had gone to work for Cuba at such risk to his personal safety, the Guatemalan national said that his country owed a lot to the island and that it was a great privilege to help the Cuban cause.
